G2A Offers to Pay Media Outlets to Run Pre-Written Defense Article

Add it to the list.

Third-party gray market key reseller, G2A, has been under increased fire the past week. Sure, it's had its fair share of accusations and criticisms slung its way over the years, but nothing quite like what we've seen in the past week. Today, an email sent from G2A to a handful of website owners, attempted to manipulate the public image of the company in an incredibly scummy way.

The email included a "transparent" and "unbiased" pre-written article about G2A that presented a warped spin on the truth about stolen game keys. The "truth"...
 

Earth Defense Force 5 Coming to PC this Week

EDF! EDF! EDF!

The fifth mainline installment in the man vs. bugs saga known as Earth Defense Force was announced to be coming to the PC. Not only that, but Earth Defense Force 5 is coming to the PC this week on Thursday, July 11. That's a mere three days away from today! You can presently add it to your Wishlist on Steam if you want.

As usual, you will play as a member of the Earth Defense Force (EDF) as they battle giant ants, massive spiders, and all sorts of creepy crawlies. At your disposal will be a huge arsenal of weapons, vehicles, mechs, and customizable class...
 

Epic Promises to Cover Shenmue 3 Refunds for Problem They Created in the First Place

Then quickly announces this will happen again.

If you've been following the Shenmue 3 development saga for any length of time, you are probably well aware of a few things. First, you are probably well aware that the game pulled in over $6.3 million on Kickstarter alone. After the Kickstarter run ended, it used another service to keep collecting from fans that wanted to help fund the game. The total amount pledged rose to almost $7.2 million. Deep Silver was then selected as the game's publisher. However, it is not clear how much, if anything, they contributed as a publisher towards...
 

Game Breaking Battlefield V Bugs Still Not Fixed

No solid ETA on when they will be either.

If you have played Battlefield V from the beginning, you will probably agree that the game is fun but it's not without its flaws. In fact, it seems as though with every patch released for the game, there are almost as many new bugs added as there are ones that are squished in each patch.

The latest patch released for the game, which came about just last week, is no exception to that rule. First off, the beginning of Chapter 4 for Battlefield V's Tides of War multiplayer campaign was supposed to include the addition of a new map,...
 

Review: The Sinking City (PC)

That sinking feeling.

Frogware's The Sinking City is perhaps the best love letter to Lovecraft that we have seen in quite some time, but that may not be saying much. This most direct competition to The Sinking City was 2018's Call of Cthulhu, which really failed to capitalize on any single gameplay aspect. The Sinking City, on the other hand, at least manages to excel in one or two key areas, even if it barely stays afloat in others.

The city of Oakmont is the main location for The Sinking City. The first thing you see upon arrival is dreariness. Well, that and a dead...

  • Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig Departs Naughty Dog (Updated)

    Uncharted Writer Amy Hennig Departs Naughty Dog (Updated)

    Update: Naughty Dog has responded to the allegations that Druckmann and Straley had anything to do with Hennig's departure.
    Earlier this week we had to confirm the regrettable news that Amy Hennig has left Naughty Dog. She will be missed and, as we stated before, we appreciate the significant contributions that she has made to Naughty Dog and the industry in general. We wish her the best. However, we feel it necessary to clear up a very important point that was unprofessionally misreported when the story broke. Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann were NOT involved in what transpired. It was very upsetting to us that dozens of stories were run, linking back to the same hurtful acc

  • Wrong Version of South Park: The Stick of Truth was Sent to Germany, Includes Swastikas

    Including imagery of the swastika in games or other media in Germany is considered a violation of federal law. That's why games that feature Germans in World War II have to be heavily edited prior to release in that region.

    Unfortunately, it seems as though the wrong version was reproduced and sent to Germany that does not include censoring of a few scenes containing the swastika. Whoops!

    Here's a translated excerpt from Gameswelt that details the issue.
    How us an anonymous source has happened, seems the USK version of South Park: The staff come to be the truth uncut in the trade. Thus, not only the previously discussed contain scenes

    Kojima Wants a PC Version of Metal Gear Solid 5

    In a recent interview with GameSpot, Hideo Kojima expressed a big interest in creating a PC version of Metal Gear Solid 5.
    "PC, that's my original background. I originally created PC games," Kojima said. "A long time ago I didn't want to rely on platforms to release games, so if people want it, I cannot make a formal announcement, but that is definitely something that I would like to do."
    Right now, Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes is slated for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is currently slated to be released on the Xbox One and PlaySta...

  • Battlefield 4 Updated on Consoles - Includes Max Rank Increase, Tweaks, Fixes, and Drugged Vision

    The latest update for Battlefield 4 came out for the consoles today. Gamers on the PS3, PS4, 360, and Xbone get to enjoy a variety of tweaks, fixes, and a new rank cap of 120!

    They also get to experience this.


    Those images were posted by two different users and seems to be a new issue that was introduced in the latest patch. Also, the Killcam is broken for many players. It now sometimes doesn't display the killer's info at all, sometimes it shows the wrong info, other times it simply shows a teammate instead of the person who killed you. Many players are also reporting that their games are locking up or outright crashing between every map change and sometimes randomly in the middle of a round. There are no vehicles or parachute spawns in the Obliteration mode. Guns sometimes spawn a good 5+ seconds after your character spawns. These, plus other issues, wer...

  • Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    Layoffs Hit Thief Developer Eidos Montreal

    It is perhaps not that uncommon after a major title is shipped to see some additional help let go. Extra hands are brought on during development that are suddenly no longer needed once the game is released. It may be a common occurrence but it is no less sad to hear.

    The latest round of layoffs have impacted 27 people at Eidos Montreal, the development studio behind Thief and Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Square Enix confirmed the unfortunate news today with RPS.

  • Rocksteady Claims That a Single Character in Arkham Knight Has Same Polygon Count as Entire Arkham Asylum Environment

    In an interview with Game Informer, Rocksteady shared some information about Batman: Arkham Knight. One of the things they shared was that a single character in Arkham Knight has the same polygon count as an "entire Arkham Asylum environment."

    Lead character artist, Albert Feliu, shared some insight.
    "At the beginning, we started making characters that were about three to four times the polygon count and texture sizes of Arkham city," Feliu told the magazine.

    "As we kept going with every character we just pushed it more. It's the kind of thing that sounds insane. Like one character is as big as the polygon count of Arkham Asylum, the whole environment."
